Vibration Alerts

Application code can initiate the vibration capability of the device to alert users of events occurring in the application. To use this feature,
you must do the following:

  • Add a reference to the namespace Microsoft.Devices to your class.
  • Call the static methods of the default VibrateController class to start and stop vibration.

To initiate vibration for the default duration, call the Start method. To specify the duration, include a TimeSpan that defines the duration of the vibration as the parameter of the Start method. To stop vibration, call the Stop method.

C#
VibrateController.Default.Start(); // Default duration
VibrateController.Default.Start(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(2));
VibrateController.Default.Stop();

Web Browser

You can invoke the Windows Phone 7 web browser in your applications using the WebBrowserTask class. You simply specify the URL
to open, and call the Show method. The following code example shows how to do this.

C#
WebBrowserTask browserTask = new WebBrowserTask();
browserTask.URL = “http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile”;
browserTask.Show();
